This couple from Slovenia wanted to get married somewhere intimate with a few of their friends to witness while visiting New York City. I recommended one of my favorite cozy bars in Brooklyn on the cute little stage in their back room- nobody was around at 6pm so we had the space all to ourselves. I have always thought the charm of this place would lend itself to an intimate wedding ceremony and sure enough they loved it.
Since I moved into my new studio in Long Island City last spring I’ve enjoyed shooting headshots in the surrounding neighborhood when the weather was right– it is a fantastic area for finding interesting textures and backgrounds for these type of actor/model portraits, and the best part is that hardly anyone is around to make my subjects self-consious or distracted… that’s hard to find in manhattan locations.
I had a model portfolio shoot with a young model named Dyck Whitfield… he had the longest craziest hair and so naturally we shot him flipping it around in his tux. Check out my favorites from the shoot.
